Steve Perry Says Journey Reunion Not Likely

(Photo by Jason Kempin/Getty Images)You always wonder if they ever will, but the remaining memebers of Journey have said they will never work with Steve Perry, but now Steve speaks.

The resurgence of Journey and the band’s hit “Don’t Stop Believin’” may have given fans hope of a reunion, but former lead singer Steve Perry says that’s probably not going to happen.

 

“It’s like any emotional, committed relationship. At some point, they seem to all have a shelf life and bands are no exception,” he said. “Life has moved us all on in different places in our lives. . They’re doing what they’re doing — they have been since ’98. And I’ve been doing what I’m doing, which is living my life and having a personal life.”

 

Perry, who rarely does detailed interviews, spoke to The Associated Press by phone last week, ahead of Tuesday’s release of Journey’s “Greatest Hits Vol. 2″ and the remastered version of Perry’s 1984 solo album, “Street Talk,” which included the No. 1 hit “Oh Sherrie” and the ballad “Foolish Heart.”

 

His former band mates have continued on since Perry’s departure 13 years ago, performing as Journey with a new lead singer, Arnel Pineda. Pineda sounds like Perry, who was once ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as No. 76 of the greatest 100 singers of all time.

 

Perry doesn’t dwell on the band’s current lineup, saying that everyone has moved on, but said he relishes the songs he did with Journey that keep getting airplay.
